  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Sugar Land for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Does Your Home Have Mold

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all molds from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all molds, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Mold is one of the most challenging issues you can encounter as a property owner. It can be difficult to detect at first, and if left untreated, it has the potential to cause big problems. Once there are signs that mold levels have a certain point, it’s time to consider professional mold remediation.  Below are a few reasons why you should consider mold remediation while dealing with mold in your home or business:

  • Taking care of your health: Over time, any exposure to mold can lead to many different health problems. Different symptoms can develop; mold can trigger asthma and allergic reactions, as well as induce respiratory complications.
  • Avoid serious damage: If untreated, mold will continue to spread and eventually cause more destruction. When mold is not removed early enough, it can compromise the structural integrity of a home or business and damage beyond repair.
  • To prevent future mold growth: The purpose of mold remediation is to significantly reduce the amount of mold currently present in a structure.
